nautical miles from shore. the relevant area for the united states is probably more than 1.5 times the size of texas. in fact, we believe it could be considerably larger. u.s. oil and gas companies are now ready, willing, and able to explore this area. but they have made it clear to us that they need the maximum level of international legal certainty before they will or could make the substantial investments. and we believe create many jobs in doing so, needed to extract these far offshore resources. if we were a party to the convention, we would gain international recognition of our sovereign rights, including by using the convention's procedures and therefore, be able to give our oil and gas companies this legal certainty. staying outside the convention, we simply cannot. the second development concerns deep seabed mining which takes place in that part of the ocean floor that is beyond any country's jurisdiction. now, for years, technological challenges meant that deep seabed mining was only theoretical. today's advances make it very real. but it's also very expense of. and before an

between billions and trillions of dollars that we would not have the in the united states and would be transferred to, in accordance with the u.n. international sea base authority. now, the way we arrive at this and the way to put this in context i would say between 12 and 18 % of royalties is about as much as they are going to allow and still continue to develop those resources. 7 so the united states would receive in that area, according to this task force, somewhere between 12.5 and 18.75% in royalties. now, the problem with this is, that under article 82, the law of the sea treaty, would require the u.s. to give up after a period of time between seven and 12 years about 7% of this. so if we take the conservative side of what the task force has said and say just $1 trillion, $1 trillion would equate to $70 billion that would be royalties that would be paid to the isa as "pos opposed to the united states and of course go to the organization in kingston, jamaica for redistribution to the developing world. and this is the first time in history that an international organization, the u.
